Explorer Battery Age Minerals (ASX:BM8) has begun a baseline fieldwork program at its Falcon Lake Lithium Project in Canada.
The company, which has a $37.71 market capitalisation, says the baseline fieldwork program is being undertaken to provide a comprehensive overview of the environmental conditions at Falcon Lake.
This in turn is expected to support environmental assessments and environmental permitting.
Battery Age Minerals reports the fieldwork will aim to identify and assess potential impacts from its proposed activities, as well as ensure responsible environmental management throughout the project’s lifecycle.
Fieldwork is already underway, with the installation of Audio Recording Units (ARUs) on site. These units are utilised to capture birdsong of migratory birds during their mating period from June to early July.
Data collected from these ARUs are expected to contribute to the understanding of the local avian population and their habitat use, paving the way for informed decision-making during the company’s environmental assessment process.
This program comes only 8 days after the discovery of spodumene-bearing pegmatites from an ongoing maiden drilling program at the project, as announced by the company on 4 July 2023.
Battery Age Minerals stated 10 of the 13 initial holes intersected mineralised pegmatites of varying visual spodumene content and highlighted the ‘significant’ potential of the project.
Commenting on the start of the environmental program, Battery Age Chief Executive Officer Gerard O’Donovan says: “We are pleased to have commenced baseline survey work at Falcon Lake. It is imperative that we gather baseline data at the earliest opportunity to provide us with comprehensive data moving forward.
Doing this in parallel with our maiden drilling campaign will allow us to commence critical path activities while building on our understanding of the mineralisation at Falcon Lake.”
